The U.S. has a vibrant and broad commercial relationship with Israel with extensive investment in both directions and deep ties between U.S. and Israeli firms. Since signing the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) in 1985, U.S.-Israel–trade has grown eight-fold. Nearly all non-agricultural trade tariffs between the United States and Israel have been eliminated since 1995. With per capita GDP of over $40,000 and a population of 9 million, there are significant opportunities for U.S. exporters.
The U.S. Commercial Service and Foreign Agricultural Service offices at the Embassy stand ready to assist U.S. companies seeking export opportunities to Israel and offer a broad range of services for U.S. firms.
We are also eager to support Israeli companies interested in exploring investment opportunities in the U.S. The U.S. remains the world’s most popular destination for foreign direct investment. It is ranked by numerous organizations as one of the world’s friendliest business environments, with a world-leading financial system, strong protection of intellectual property rights, deep labor markets, and the world’s most productive and innovative labor force.
